Cheltenham Races Cancelled

The Cheltenham races have been cancelled for today due to the extremely strong winds forecast.

Police are therefore urging people not to go to the racecourse and advising those who have already begun their journey to turn around and make their way home.

As a result of forecasts that winds of 60 to 80 miles per hour are expected, the decision has been taken by racecourse officials to cancel races for today.

It is hoped racing will continue tomorrow and Friday.

Racecourse facilities will not be open to members of the public today.
